Deli-licious Healthy Spots Palm Desert

The Real Italian Deli is a great stop! My daughter and I love a great sandwich, and this deli combines a great sandwich with a super fun Italian market vibe. It is also a locally owned business with a full bakery and deli case for lots of take-home goodies like yummy desserts and frozen pizzas to go.

Lettuce Tempt You Healthy Spots Palm Desert

So many places are adding healthy menu items that never lack flavor and inspiration! Obviously, I am a fan of kale, so any kale salad is a friend of mine! I love the Tuscan kale salad at Piero’s PizzaVino with grilled salmon. It has pine nuts, roasted garlic, toasted breadcrumbs and Pecorino Toscano grated on top! It’s a great lunch or dinner spot—very casual, but the food is upscale and artfully crafted.


Home Away From Home

La Serena Villas is a sanctuary that makes you feel like you’re in another country. The rooms have a private Jacuzzi in a beautiful courtyard with a comfy seating area. The little kitchenette makes for a great sneak-away retreat or staycation with a friend or sweetheart. I especially love the bedding and decor—charming and understated. Pro tip: dine upstairs at Azucar and order the blood orange margarita!

Chrissy’s Jewelry on El Paseo is a great place to find something special for yourself or if you need a hostess or birthday gift! Chrissy has items that are priced for the tween gift all the way to something really special from a one-of-a-kind designer from Spain! She used to be at the street fair in Palm Desert on the weekends and now has a great year-round space.


Get in, We’re Going Shopping

I love boutique shopping… I feel that these shops spend so much time researching trends, and having a rich selection of styles and choices is quite a talent! At Blonde Clothing Boutique, you can get a gorgeous, high-end leather boho bag, some sparkly flip-flops and some great arm candy. The owner, Michelle, can style you with some great new designers that are pioneering new trends!
